Written by Dr. Moneen Jones, Director, Missouri Pollinator Conservancy Program

Currently, I manage two non-profits, the Missouri Pollinator Conservancy Program and the Midwest Master Beekeeper Program. Most recently, I was the Research Entomologist at the University of Missouri's Delta Research Center located in Portageville, MO, when I started the Missouri Master Beekeeper Program. All content for the new program remains the same.
